Pearl Jam to Knock Miley Cyrus Off No. 1 US Spot With 'Lightning Bolt'
Grunge veterans Pearl Jam are headed for their sixth No. 1 US record as "Lightning Bolt" is predicted to sell up to 180,000 units in the US within the first week. This means that Eddie Vedder and co. will take over the throne from pop sensation Miley Cyrus, outselling her "Bangerz" release by around 100,000 copies and forcing her to drop to No. 2. Coming it at No. 3 is another rock veteran, former the Beatles bassist Paul McCartney, whose "New" album is likely to sell up to 75,000 units. Possibly rounding up the Top 10 comes Willie Nelson, whose "To All the Girls" is estimated to sell up to 40,000 units. As Vintage Vinyl News reports, the final chart will be released on Thursday. As for Pearl Jam, the band's charts statistic is nothing short of impressive. Apart from six No. 1 spots mentioned beforehand, the group also scored four No. 2 chart peaks and merely a single No. 5 spot with 2002's "Riot Act." "Lightning Bolt" saw its release on October 15 through Monkeywrench Records with 12 new songs. Featuring Brendan O'Brien at the helm of production, the record spawned two singles so far - "Mind Your Manners" back in July and "Sirens" track in mid-September.
